Etiquette

  • Do always ask before taking a photo of locals.
  • Don’t drink alcohol on the street or in public spaces.
  • Do cover knees and shoulders when in the medina, whether you’re a man or woman; it shows your respect for your Moroccan hosts.
  • Don’t eat or smoke in public during daylight hours in Ramadan.
  • Do learn basic greetings. A few words in Darija (Moroccan Arabic) will delight your hosts.
  • Don’t skip pleasantries. Always say hello before asking for help or prices.
  • Don't overtly display affection to your partner in public. Hand-holding is fine; kissing is not.
